CONFIRMATION - Confirmation isn't about crossing T's or dotting I's, and
preparation for Confirmation isn't about putting hours in a classroom. It's not
even about quality and content. Confirmation is all about a conversion of the
heart experience. If you are interested in taking that next step in the faith
journey contact Deacon Ed, in the Religious Ed Offices - 577-8782. "You will
receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be my
witness... " Acts 1:8
